November Training

I feel like every month is a blur and I find myself posting a monthly recap sooner and sooner. I almost feel like I was just posting about my stress fracture…in reality that was 3 months ago.  I cannot complain though because each month has brought me closer and closer to running at 100%.  

November training was my best in a while. I’m slowly ticking away at more miles. I’m putting in the base miles to set me up for races in 2015.  I’m more motivated than ever to get healthy and fit again. I think that comes from a combination of being injured and finding local races to do.

November Stats:
Miles: 147 (the most since August)
Paces: 7:50-12-untimed
Longest Run: Harbor Lights Half Marathon (only race)

harbor lights half marathon 1
Shortest Run: 3.38

Best Run: Thanksgiving I had a run that I felt like I could run forever…then I woke up the next day sore (but so well worth it).

I thought this was a really good month for me. My confidence is slowly building back with running. Am I there yet? No but it takes time.  I honestly don’t have any complaints with this month, I achieved everything I wanted too.  I’m really happy with my running this month.

Goals for December:

My main goal is to stay consistent and to stay injury free.  My secondary goal is to jump into some races.

Dec 7: Schuylkill River Run
Dec 14: Haddon Heights 5k
Dec 31: Beat the Ball 5k

Past racing I plan to continue building my miles. I want to continue building my base and laying more foundation. If all goes well, I’m hoping to run between 200-250 miles. If I don’t feel right than I won’t. I want to continue build miles smartly.  There is no sense in running more miles only to run no miles in January.

Questions for you:
